I just can't jump into a new Windows, after being a victim of the "Express" upgrade to Vista, and watching my Windows 7 RC's boot loader self-destruct after installing updates. (FYI I am making this post from my Windows 7 RC test machine, after having repaired the bootloader with a combination of FDISK and the install disc)

Anyway as a student I can get Win7 either for free or discounted, provided this deal stands: Microsoft Office for Students - The Ultimate Steal
I'm in the same vote, Vista is treating me just fine as of now, and until the need becomes greater than the want, I will keep Windows 7 at arms reach.
